CDC Victoria, a wholly owned subsidiary of ComfortDelGro Corporation Australia (CDC), will continue to deliver its reliable and efficient bus services in Ballarat, Geelong, and Mildura with the renewal of its Regional Bus Services Contracts.
The renewed 10-year contracts have come into effect from 1 July 2022 and will cover major route services, some school services, and some V/Line services in the regional cities of Ballarat, Geelong and Mildura. The new contracts are modernised to deliver improved bus services, improved customer experience and greater transparency of bus performance.
CDC Victoria currently employs over 300 employees and operates over 240 buses in regional Victoria.
CDC Victoria CEO, Jeff Wilson, said he was excited with the company’s transition to the new contract arrangements and committed to delivering a great outcome for the regional communities.
Mr. Wilson added, “CDC Victoria is pleased to continue to provide long-term employment opportunities for our regional people. We are proud to have a huge diversity in our workforce and this long-term contract will enable us to continue to contribute to better social outcomes for regional communities.
Another important facet of these contracts is transitioning to zero-emission vehicle technologies commencing in 2025 and achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
“CDC is very experienced with the zero-emission buses internationally and the reduction of our environmental footprints is key to our sustainability,” said Mr. Wilson.
